Ever wondered how it feels to carry hopes of over a billion people on your shoulders, every time you walk into the field? Ever wondered how it feels to breathe free amidst the loud echoes enchanting your name? Ever wondered how it feels to stay away from the limelight in personal life, despite being in the spotlight for larger part of the professional life? Ever wondered how it feels to be simple, humble and down to earth, even though the world worships you as God of the game. Ever wondered how difficult it is to stay grounded when you are gifted with the most beautiful and surreal pair of wings. Ever wondered how difficult it is to be Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar, despite being peoples' "Tendlya".

Couldn't see an Ashes Series thread so figured I'd start one.  @Laaloo, feel free to sticky this Thread old sport.
Obviously I will have an keen interest in how Australia go given Pakistan's own born Khawaja will likely play for Australia.
I cannot see Australia losing a Test.  I suspect they will whitewash England and win most games inside 4 days.  The (lol) England batting line up looks very fragile except for Root how will likely struggle as most English captains do in Australia.  Starc, Hazlewood and Lyon will be too strong for the batting line up while Smith (best batsman in the world), Warner (best opener in the world) and Khawaja will dominate the English retirement village pace attack.
I for one would be very surpised if the scoring line wasn't  5 - 0 Australias favour at the end of the series
